Lily Shows Loyalty

Two fairly identical lily plants grow in clay pots in the kitchen at Spencer Alley. They put out three or four blooms every summer but seldom put out any in the winter. I noticed this single surprising prospect last week and was amused and superstitiously pleased that it actually opened today, on my birthday. Equally pleased to have found a way to document it in the narrow, fast-moving beam of light from the setting sun.
